WP Multi Network

Description

Turn your WordPress Multisite installation into many multisite networks, surrounding one global set of users.

WP Multi Network allows global administrators to create new networks with their own sites and domain arrangements.

FAQ

Can each network have a different domain?

Yes you can. That is what this plugin does best.

Think of how WordPress.org works:

  • wordpress.org
  • buddypress.org
  • bbpress.org
  • wordcamp.org

Users are global, and can login to any of those networks with the same credentials.

Will this work on standard WordPress?

You can activate it, but it won’t do anything. You need to have the multisite functionality enabled and working first.

Where can I get support?

The WordPress support forums: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wp-multi-network/

What’s up with uploads?

As of version 3.5, new WordPress multisite installs use a more efficient way to serve uploaded files.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t play well with multiple networks (yet). Installs that upgraded from 3.4 or below are not affected.

WP Multi-Network needs to be running to help set the upload path for new sites, so all networks created with this plugin will have it network activated.
If you disable it on one of your networks, any new site you create on that network will store its uploaded files under that network’s main site’s uploads folder. It’s not pretty.

Just leave this plugin network-activated (or in mu-plugins) and it will take care of everything.

Where can I find documentation?

Not much to talk about really. Check the code for details!
